BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:35 P.M.) – Minutes ago, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) broke-through the Islamic State’s (ISIS) lines at the strategic Industrial District of Deir Ezzor, liberating the entire area after an intense 24 hour battle.

Led by the 4th Mechanized Division and Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army began the operation to liberate the Industrial District, yesterday, but temporarily halted the assault at night in order to allow their attack choppers bombard the Islamic State’s positions.

At dawn on Wednesday, the Syrian Army would resume their assault and liberate large parts of the Industrial District that were previously occupied by the Islamic State for over 24 months.

The Industrial District was the most fought over area in the provincial capital these past two years, with both the Syrian Army and Islamic State trading offensives in order to gain the upper-hand against each other.

With the Industrial District liberated, the Syrian Army should be able to take control of nearby Saqr Island within the next ten days.

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.

Send some vacuum bombs on the Saqr Island. It is large enough.
